    Yes, that part was in the original story. But remember, it’s only Sheldon’s and Oscar’s speculation about the Glarbs being fearful of a revolution. In actuality, they are too arrogant to feel that way. it’s Jeffrey’s screwing up mostly that leads to some of the slaves having no work.

    Funny comments yesterday!! Glarbman indeed, Night! What would a Glarbman costume look like anyway? Not sure but it would probably have a big circled “G” somewhere!

    My vision of planet Glarb is a lush, beautiful green planet populated by all sorts of wonderful and strange animals in its early years. Tribbles or their ancestors abounded. Eventually Glarbian apes evolved into humanoid Glarbs and dominated the planet.

    Things were still okay, until Gritzel’s ancestors began to rule, obsessed with power and cruelty, and especially experimenting with genetic engineering. That’s when the spirit of the planet changed and the Tribbles rarely showed themselves anymore.

    My goodness, look at what I’ve started (a few years ago)! Wouldn’t it be cool if this entire comment section was filled with everybody’s alternate Alley Oop story because we’ve all had enough of what the Bender’s have done to this strip?!!

    To Teresa, NG, Bacon, and whomever wants to argue that laser-headed dinosaurs could defeat the armies of earth.

    I maintain the big lugs wouldn’t stand a chance. We could defend ourselves with mirrors so every time they shoot a laser at us, it bounces back and destroys them.
    We could set huge bear traps for them.
    Dig ditches, cover them up, put steel spikes pointing upward at the bottom.
    These methods would not be eliminated by any type of electronic jamming.
    We could kill them from the ground with tanks and bullets.

    From the air with missiles, bombs.
    Probably find a way to repel them with smell or subsonic sounds.
    It would be no contest.

    I dare any of you to attack me with a herd of dinosaurs! I will defeat them all – just don’t tell nottawasaga.

    To nottawasaga: Regarding: “bio diversity allows humans to live on the planet…. killing the wild beasts is the road to homocide..we have to learn to live WITH not WITHOUT.”

    Okay, you’ve convinced me it would be wrong. Henceforth, whenever I come across a dinosaur I will not kill it.

    Say we lived in a world right now where there were hundreds or even thousands of malevolent wild beasts roaming the streets and eating people and causing great destruction. How long do you think it would take with our current technology to destroy all of them?

    I’m guessing a day?
    We can shoot them from the air.
    We can bomb them.
    Easier yet we can poison them by feeding them cyanide-laced food.
    We can electrocute them. etc.
    If we wanted to wipe out dangerous beasts, even as big as dinosaurs, we could very easily do so. The dinosaurs would not stand a chance against our current technology.

    What do Glarb Tribbles eat? Berries, nuts, corn, flowers, acorns. They can also eat bark and small eggs. They love honey and tree sap!

    Theresa, a while back it was mentioned that even though Tica and Kluco cover their tracks when going from ship to ship, a soft rain caused them to be slightly visible. So despite the fact that there’s a symbol on the ship showing it to have already been looted, the Glarbs got suspicious after seeing the tracks!

    Well I removed the Smothers Brothers and Bobby Riggs and Billie Jean when Alley was fighting Torka in the holodeck. And I changed some of Torka’s dialogue. And I added a little more scenes when Alley is getting chased by the Godzilla fish, but I haven’t given that part to viper yet.
